چکیده انگلیسی


• Hand hygiene compliance of health care workers, with a special focus on yeast colonization and contamination, was evaluated.
• We demonstrated that hand hygiene compliance was superior for nurses and moderate for medical doctors.
• In contrast to previous studies, a low incidence of yeasts on health care workers' hands was found.
• The genetic relatedness of yeasts suggests the possibility of cross-transmission in the clinical setting.

BackgroundA 1-day point prevalence study evaluated hand hygiene compliance, yeast colonization, and contamination, focusing on the hands of health care workers (HCWs) and patient-oriented surfaces.MethodsHand hygiene compliance was evaluated by applying the direct observation technique and the World Health Organization's compliance program, “My Five Moments for Hand Hygiene.” A total of 128 samples from HCWs working in intensive care (n = 11) and intermediate care (n = 2) units and 65 environmental samples from Innsbruck Medical University Hospital were investigated.ResultsHand hygiene compliance was superior for nurses (83.5%) and moderate for medical doctors (45.2%). In general, fungal growth was unique; only 9 of 128 HCW samples and only 4 of 65 environmental samples yielded positive results. The genetic relatedness of yeasts from the same species was investigated by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) typing. RAPD profiles exhibited the potential for cross-transmission of yeasts.ConclusionIn general, the fungal colonization and contamination rate was low, but a high level of hand hygiene compliance was lacking.
